BiographyResearch InterestScientific ActivitiesPublications

Dr. Edward Y. Lee received his A.B. and M.D. from the University of Chicago and his M.P.H. from Harvard University, followed by an internship at Harvard Medical Center (BIDM / BWH / DFCI) and radiology residency at Mallincrodt Institute of Radiology / Washington University Medical Center. After completing a pediatric radiology fellowship as a chief fellow at Childrens Hospital Boston and Harvard Medical School in 2006, he joined the Departments of Radiology and Medicine, Division of Pulmonary Medicine as a clinician-researcher whose academic focus is on developing non-invasive imaging methods that will improve the clinical care of pediatric patients diagnosed with thoracic anomalies and abnormalities. Dr. Lee was appointed as the Chief of Thoracic Imaging Division in 2010 and has provided integrated image performance and interpretation across modalities for congenital and acquired pediatric thoracic disorders at Childrens Hospital Boston. Dr. Lee has more than 120 peer-reviewed journal articles, 80 review articles or book chapters, and two books related to pediatric chest imaging. Dr. Lee has made significant improvements in advanced multidetector CT (MDCT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for the non-invasive evaluation of pediatric airways, lungs, and mediastinal vascular disorders, largely accomplished with the funding support of the Society of Pediatric Radiology and Society of Thoracic Radiology. He has served either as a visiting professor or as an invited speaker on various topics related to pediatric thoracic imaging education more than 20 different countries in the Americas, Europe, and Asia. Additionally, as an assistant editor of the pediatric section of the American Journal of Roentgenology (AJR); editorial board member of nine journals; and reviewer of 25 journals; Dr. Lee has also helped guide and establish the educational and scientific direction and growth in his academic specialty pediatric thoracic imaging at academic and medical institutions around the world.

His primary research activities have focused on the development and application of advanced CT and MRI imaging methods, aimed at improving diagnostic capabilities, therapeutic options and patient outcomes in pediatric patients with various anomalies and abnormalities of the large airways, lungs and mediastinal vessels.

Patricia Silveyra, MSc, PhD

Assistant Professor of Pediatrics and Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
The Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine
500 University Drive, MC H085
Hershey, PA, 17033, USA

BiographyResearch InterestScientific ActivitiesPublications

Dr. Silveyra is from Buenos Aires, Argentina, where she earned Bachelor and Master’s degrees in Biology, and a Doctor of Philosophy Degree in Biochemistry. She then attended Penn State University as a Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar for 2008-2009 and she pursued post-doctoral studies with Dr. Floros in the Department of Pediatrics. The focus of her research was on the molecular mechanisms that regulate human surfactant protein genes and lung innate immunity in neonates. Dr. Silveyra is currently a full time Assistant Professor at the Penn State College of Medicine, where she spends most of her time committed to her investigations in pediatric pulmonary molecular biology. She is also a member of several committees at Penn State. Dr. Silveyra participates in various activities aimed to support the central Pennsylvania Latino community in the areas of education, cultural awareness, leadership and social skills development.

Her research focuses on the molecular mechanisms involved in the development and resolution of pediatric and adult inflammatory lung disease. Her laboratory uses a combination of molecular biology, immunology, and endocrinology approaches to study hormonal regulation of pulmonary miRNA expression and function in response to environmental insults such as exposure to ozone and infectious agents. She also leads an interdisciplinary project focused on the identification of miRNAs biomarkers for neonatal inflammatory lung diseases such as bronchopulmonary dysplasia and pulmonary hypertension.
